Bland Shire Road Condition Report as at 6 April 2024 

All unsealed roads within the Bland Shire Council area are closed to vehicles over three (3) tonne until 3.00pm Monday 8 April 2024 when the situation will be reviewed. School buses, Evolution mine worker transportation, Emergency Services and Council road repair plant are exempt, subject to normal risk assessment by individual operators. 

Concessions are possible on request for urgent transport activity on routes considered suitable to carry the proposed loading. Please contact Council's Assets and Engineering Services Department for further information on the requirements of a concession.

Council regrets any inconvenience caused by this decision but the preservation of its road asset is of prime concern.
